New Delhi: If you have not linked your Aadhaar numbers to the PAN card yet, get it done immediately. Because the government has made this mandatory and this rule will be implemented from July 1. The government has also issued notification for changes in the income tax rules. Now aadhaar number is mandatory to get a new PAN number from July 1.

While revising the finance bill Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had made the aadhaar compulsory for those filing income tax returns for 2017-18. Apart from this, it was also mandatory to connect the pan with the aadhaar number, which would prevent fraud through the use of many PAN cards.

The Department of Revenue has said that every person, who has been provided PAN number from July 1, 2017, will have to give the information of the Aadhaar number to the Income Tax Department under the provisions of section 139AA sub-section-2 of Income Tax.

The Revenue Department, while amending Section 114 of the IT Act, said that this rule would be implemented from 1 July 2017. According to an estimate, about 2.07 crore taxpayers have linked the basis with the PAN. A total of 111 million people has aadhaar in the country, whereas only 25 crore people have PAN cards. Recently, the provisions of the IT Act were upheld by the High Court, although it was banned until the judgment was passed by the Constitution Bench of the High Court.

Now if you do not complete the work of linking your Aadhar and pan card by July 1, your pancard can be rejected. In such a situation, you can not file your income tax return in the current financial year, as the aadhaar and PAN card has been made mandatory for filling tax returns.

Significantly, there are more than 24.37 crores pancard in the country, and the aadhaar card of more than 113 crores has been made. Of these, only 2.87 crore people submitted tax returns during 2012-13. 2.87 crore people filed a tax return in these 1.62 crore people but did not pay a single rupee tax. That’s because a large number of individuals steal taxes or avoid tax.

So, to increase the tax collection in the country, the Income Tax Department has made aadhaar linking mandatory for filing returns. After this linking, it will be easy to stop fraud.

US space agency NASA scientists have claimed about finding another solar system. These are Earth-sized Seven Planet. NASA claimed that among seven three has possibilities of life and can have the ocean on these planets. Here’s what the scientist of NASA claimed the possibilities of life on these newly discovered planets.

These planets are the size of Earth
NASA tweeted that is a new record. Residential zone outside our solar system around stars. Seven new planets the size of Earth are found. Spitzer Space Telescope found that they are as big as the planet Earth in size and can be expected to have a residential zone.

Possibility of existence of Aliens
NASA scientists claim that this three planet have a sea. NASA also claimed that there are chances of water as on earth. Every possibility of the existence of Aliens.

How these Planet Works?
Seven planets in the new solar system have the size of Earth. These planets move around Trappist-1 in the orbit. Six of 7 Planet has the temperature ranging from 0 to 100 degrees Celsius.

What is the USP?
Years on this three Planet is of 4, 6 and 9 days. Which means all three the planets takes 4, 6 and 9 days to complete the orbit around the sun (The Trappist). These three are the part from Planet Earth. Dr Chris Copperwheat leading this team from NASA said: “The discovery has boosted the possibilities of life in the universe beyond Earth in the future.”

How important is this Discovery
Discovery of these new group of planets has been described as the greatest discoveries in the world of science. The new solar system is 39 light years away from Earth (378 million km). However, it’s may take more than a decade to explore these planets and find the existence of life.

What is the composition of these planets?
These newly discovered solar systems have the smallest Sun Trappist-1 around which these planets revolves. Trappist is slightly larger than Jupiter in our solar system. The light from the sun is 200 times less. Scientists estimate that when the fuel will end in the sun then Earth will be destroyed. But this planet will exist. Trappist hydrogen gas is burning slowly. Which means it will exist 700 times higher than the current age of the universe to do.

The Supreme Court in its judgment on Tuesday convicted the AIADMK General Secretary V. K. Sasikala in a 20-year-old disproportionate assets case. She has been sentenced to four years jail term. Though the verdict has put her out of the Chief Minister’s race for a decade, she has garnered sufficient supporters to rule her legacy.

The political instability has considerably affected the state and its people. Though the crisis has come to an end with the appointment of Edappadi K Palaniswami as the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, the upheaval caused in these days have left a blot on the political history. However, this has raised questions about the integrity of the ministers, including the former Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam and General Secretary Sasikala.

While the turmoil persisted in the state and social media ranted over the nomination of Sasikala as the Chief Minister, Sasikala transferred her supporting MLAs to the Golden Bay Resort. The divide between the two most pivotal members of the AIADMK party – Sasikala and Panneerselvam – was evident when the latter resigned from his post and declared publicly, “I was insulted and forced to resign as the Chief Minister.”

In the end, none of the chaos or arguments is for the public. It’s only for the position. The ugly political battle in Tamil Nadu coaxed me to scribe on this issue. Below are the certain unanswered questions battling within me that made me realise the deteriorating politics level in our country:

1. When OPS said, he was forced to resign and insulted by ministers.

How can the Chief Minister be compelled to resign? And if it happened, then why didn’t he keep a press conference before resigning? Why did he wait for two days to share this information with the public? Some of us will say that when you are locked in a room with a gun pointing your face, you are compelled to take such decisions, but then what is the guarantee that OPS will not do such things again?

If Chief Minister is under threat, imagine the case of citizens. It would hurt us, in the long run, if Tamil Nadu CM does a particular agreement under pressure that would affect the public.

Can we even afford to have such a Chief Minister who takes a decision under pressure? Should we elect such ministers who remained silent when OPS was being threatened and at the end, dodged on the other side?

2. When one of the OPS supporters said, they were asked to sign on blank paper.

What a shame when a minister tries to rectify his mistake by using such statements. How can a Minister / MLA sign on blank paper? Can we even trust such representatives?

None of the ministers who complained about political pressure for signing papers has filed a report. They have accepted publicly in media, but no legal action was adopted.

If the police don’t listen to Minister on these important issues, then what are the chances that the police will hear to ordinary citizens?

3. When Sasikala kept the MLAs in resort, but MLAs declined it

Can the candidates be kept in a resort without any access? Definitely, no. You cannot incarcerate ministers just to prove strength. However, there was a twist as few MLAs accepted being kept under coercion while others denied it.

There is a possibility that these MLAs were also threatened to support Sasikala. How can we trust such emissaries to work for the society without being scared? This level of politics is not deserved by the people. The Chief Minister’s post has become an object being dragged from one leader to another. Such leaders are an example because of which young aspiring leaders are either misled or misunderstood by the people.

Sasikala could have been arrested under kidnapping charges immediately but thanks to our chosen representatives who failed to accept the truth legally. They neglected to realise how their confinement has brought the entire state to a halt.

Scarcity of political options

This level brings forth a huge debate on what basis we select our leaders. On one side we encourage young leaders without political experience but determination and honesty to work for the public, and on the other end, we choose a leader without political experience but on emotional grounds.

The latter case was quite similar with Sasikala’s nomination for the Chief Minister. It was palpable that her selection was by her support to Jayalalithaa, but people were mourning her jail term failed to either understand or blindly ignore her course of action in the past few days. Surprisingly, they are saddened by her conviction but not disappointed over her involvement in the corruption case.

To develop a state/nation, the leader needs to be competent in planning, decision-making and leadership skills. And not just choose anyone random because of the requirement of the party. The people deserve better because it’s their money and they want it to be used for their state development.

PS: This is my general opinion, and it’s not favouring or defaming any leader. I would be happy to know the view of readers.

One of the most influential and powerful chief ministers, J Jayalalitha, died on 5th December 2015. The prominent personalities had requested the Supreme Court to probe into the death matter of J Jayalalitha. P H Pandian one of the oldest members of the party has also asked for the probe after the clashes of O Pannerselvam and Sasikala for Tamilnadu CM. Supreme court also received PIL for her death matter.

In this regard, a video has gone viral claiming Jayalalitha dead body was brought to Apollo. One of the Apollo doctors had declared that Jayalalitha was already dead when she was brought to the hospital. The doctor came out and spoke after she has resigned from Apollo hospital. She also stated that she is ready to face any kind probe. The video was released by Dinamalar, a leading daily in Tamilnadu, on their youtube channel.

Watch the video here:

The Apollo Hospital in the press conference earlier this week stated that “Jayalalitha had sepsis— an infection with serious consequences— and died of a cardiac arrest. “Sepsis can affect quickly, and a person can fall sick within hours. Bacterial infection was the underlying problem,”

Doctor Richard Beale was one of the doctors who was operating J Jayalalitha. He also said in the press conference that Jayalalitha condition had improved initially and she was interacting. After she had suffered a cardiac arrest on 4 December, “at about 5 pm, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was started immediately,” Dr. Babu said. “When the CPR failed, we put her on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). We needed to give the patient time of about 24 hours after we put her on ECMO,” Babu added.
